I am happy to have received a copy of the November 1976 issue of the “Village Light,” published by Congregation Sons of Israel – Ahavath Achim of Middle Village. Doug Leblang passed this on to me, to share on the website with Middle Villagers.
He received it from Eugene Feldman who believes it was his mother’s, Bertha Flam Feldman (deceased).
Gene was kind enough to let me keep it, to share with you. I’ll have it at the reunion for anyone who is interested.

Thank you, Douglas Leblang, for your excellent contribution to Middle Village history.
In the Congregation Sons of Israel synagogue during 1954, David Leblang and myself said kaddish (the prayer for mourners), he for his mother and me for my father. Dave was very knowledgeable in Hebrew and was often called upon to be the reader.

Thank you, Norman Pessel, for your kind remembrances of my dad. I’m glad you and he were able to comfort each other in 1954.
